Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou passed away today. She has been one of my heroes since I was a teenager. I came to know her as a writer first, and fell in love with her incredibly unique and beautiful way of expressing herself. Her poems were a huge influence and inspiration to me, and her books as well. There was no end to her capacity for creative brilliance.

That wasn't just it, though. She had SOMETHING. She had a palpable light; a tangible soul that could be seen beyond every limited human perceptual boundary. She was Spirit personified and exemplified, and in shining her light, she helped us all to remember our own light. In her strength, grace, and peaceful presence, we were inspired to find our own.

Thank you for your service to this planet and its beings, Maya. May you sing with angels, dance with goddesses, and dine with the ascended masters. Blessings to you on your journey!!!
